3:05 am
then the chronic, widespread pain drained my energy. my doctor and i agreed moving more helps ease fibromyalgia pain. she also prescribed lyrica. fibromyalgia is thought to be the result of overactive nerves. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. for some patients, lyrica significantly relieves fibromyalgia pain and improves physical function. with less pain, i feel better and can be more active. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. fibromyalgia may have changed things but with less pain, i'm still a doer.
3:06 am
ask your doctor about lyrica today. lyrica, move forward with less fibromyalgia pain. new superstar maascar 'oby l.real super dramatic lashes. one: primer thickens to the max! super-volumized! o: tw black fiber formula stretches to the max! super-extended! superstar... new superstar mascara by l'oreal makeup designer paris. you're saying lisa would rather see her husband's killer go free? if the alternative is exposing him as getting murdered for his obsession with a hooker, then, yes. plus, the girl admits that farragaut started it, so if we put kiril on trial, any decent defense attorney is going to run with that. so, you're thinking about walking around the murder charge. i think i can indict kiril on sex-trafficking charges, and with the right judge, get a comparable sentence. you got the ammunition? nikolina named six other girls. so, if i can get her and the others as cooperating witnesses, i have a case.
3:07 am
i see two problems. one, there's no guarantee that farragaut's relationship with the girl isn't gonna come out in court anyway. so, you run the risk of looking like you're covering it up, and that's a hell of a risk. what's the other? when someone's murdered in my city, i kind of like to see the killer brought to justice. (knocking) commissioner, mayor-elect poole is making a round of the chief's offices. scheduled? impromptu, apparently. should i invite him up? apparently, he doesn't think he needs an invitation. don't burn the bridge. well, there's something to be said for going out on top. you're not ready. yeah? it's a hell of a lot easier to put yourself in harm's way than it is to ask others to do so. at least for me, anyway. play nice. erin. frank.
3:08 am
i would have been happy to introduce you around myself. i've always found it useful to, um, just arrive unannounced and dive right in. nevertheless, there is an etiquette to this office. one that i'm sure you'll appreciate once you start running this city. well, i just wanted to commend you on whatever you did to keep the farragaut case on track. no commendation required. my people are working with the da's office to find and punish those responsible. i see. well, then, for seeing that it's progressed without any leaks to the press. well, it's not leaks to the press that i'm worried about right now. i'm trying to find out who talked to you. frank, you know, i had a long conversation with the outgoing mayor about you. he characterized you as having a problem with authority. i draw a paycheck as the new york city police commissioner. i not only don't have a problem with authority.
3:09 am
i pretty damn well define it. well, to some, yes. but to others, frank, you define a kind of white, irish-catholic, middle-class, last-century way of thinking. you accept that? as you are an african-american, baptist, up-by-your-bootstraps community activist whose own polling shows deep gaps in support across racial and ethnic divides. but still, i won the election. thanks for dropping by. you have a good evening. can i have same-same? sure thing. (crowd chatter)
3:10 am
thanks. hey. hey. so, how did you make out last night? oh, pretty well, under the circumstances. yeah, sorry i froze you out there, but, look, cops make me tense even just hanging around. no problem. good news, though. the doctor's in the house tonight, and he's got some fresh mash. what's mash? where you been, man? look, it's like blow and x got together and had a kid. it's the best party you've ever been to, right between your ears. i'm in. yeah. me first. all right, so, let me get this straight. he kills a guy, a guy that you know, and you're just gonna go after him on pimping charges? sex-trafficking. sex... look, it's still a prosecutor pleading down a killer.
3:11 am
it will carry the same sentence as manslaughter if i can make it stick. yeah, but did you speak to dad about this? yeah, earlier today in his office. and what happened? did he throw you out of his office himself, or did he have his security throw you out? i think that he is wise enough to see that a murder trail would only mean that lisa and her boys would be utterly humiliated. i don't see the justice in that. i cannot follow you down that alley, erin. i'm not asking you for backup here, danny. (sighs) look, to make the trafficking charge stick, you need the girl. right? jackie has been hammering her for hours. she will not give up kiril. do you really think you have a better way? she won't give him up for us, but maybe she'll do it for herself. (knocking) erin, we're ready for the interview. (loud chatter and laughter)
3:12 am

3:14 am
you can only truly be free if kiril is off the streets. you know that. kiril always find a way out. no, not this time. is there a place where we can find kiril, arrest him and make him pay for what he has done to you and to all the other girls? (sobbing) nikolina. there is a cafe in astoria where they show croatian football match by satellite. (men speaking croatian) (grunts) get out of the way.

3:21 am
listen, i could, um, bring back public hangings to washington square park and i'll still be labeled soft on crime, so that's part of it, sure. but there's something else. when i was a kid in bed-stuy, they would, um, lock up the hoop courts every weekend due to budget cuts. but there was this one cop from the precinct who got a key somehow, and he would come out saturday morning, open them up, come back and kick us out at the end of the day and lock up. there's really no way you'd remember me, but i remember you. and it was the first time that i considered a white irish cop could be one of the good guys. and that still goes? i want you to stay on as my police commissioner. well...

3:23 am
down the street who throws a long shadow. well, that's never been a problem for me. oh, sure it has. for all of you. you boys never wonder if you catch a case 'cause of who your old man is? when i was pc, if guys were letting off steam or shooting the bull about some gray area of the job, they'd clam up when your dad came around. he felt outside the circle, 'cause of my position. never heard that from me. you really think i didn't know? well, since we get to weigh in, i say better the devil you know than the devil you don't know.
